Our expert says:
I wish there was a simple answer to that, but it depends not so much on the generic title of the specialist but on their training and experience of this uncommon and relatively recently recognized condition. A child psychiatrist ought to be a good bet ( expericed with children's psych disorders and with medical and nruological training ) but some neurologists with a special interest in this condition could be helpful. As a neurologist has proved unhelpful in your experience, try a child psychiatrist --- I have met some in Gauteng with a real interest in the condition. Before making an appointment, as the receptionist / secretary to check whether the specific shrink has experience and interest in this particular condition. Maybe the Dept of Psychiatry at your nearest medical school could advise, too.
